The hands up project teaches English through online storytelling and other remote learning activities. We work with children in circumstances that may be challenging because of social, political or economic reasons.
Our current projects include groups of children from UNRWA and Ministry of Education schools in Gaza and the Occupied West Bank, and Syrian children in refugee camps in Jordan.
We have two aims. Firstly to provide an interactive and motivating learning experience to children in contexts where exposure to English is limited. Secondly to build up a freely accessible bank of resources for training and development to teachers who work in such contexts.
